North American Rotorwerks Pitbull


First flown in 1993, a front-engine design, the Pitbull, has modern, unique options like float capability. The predrilled, bolt-together frame cuts down construction time for the single-seat gyro that accepts a Subaru EA-81, a 48-hp Rotax 503 or a water-cooled 582.

The Pitbull can be partially or fully enclosed and its useful load ranges from 240 to 290 pounds. All models have double bearing rotorhead with one inch main shaft. 4130 chromoly gear and stainless steel rudder control rods. Rotor blades can be 23’6”-25’6” length, and 6.25”-8” chord.
